What is DataRes?
DataRes @ UCLA is founded by data enthusiasts who love solving problems and crafting stories with data.
We have 2 main teams at DataRes:
Data Blog Team - Members of this team work on analyzing datasets on all possible topics and presenting it to a cross-functional audience by the means of an article. Previously, this team has worked on projects ranging from analyzing rap lyrics to finding trends in the suicide statistics in the LA County as well as validating Rotten Tomato’s movie rating policy.
Research Team - Members of this team work on slightly more complex problems involving the implementation of high-level machine learning and statistical models. Previously, this team has worked on projects ranging from participating in the popular Google Pronoun Detection Kaggle Competition to giving Education Statistics from different countries a statistical perspective.
We provide a platform for aspiring data scientists and analysts to work on savvy data projects outside of class that are geared towards making an impact. If you love playing with data, creating powerful visualizations, analyzing hidden trends or building predictive models, we would love to have you on the team.
